Parents' Association

Staff Gift Thank You!


Parents are an active part of our community and culture. The Parents’ Association plays a key role in organizing the annual auction—the school’s largest fundraising event of the year. The Parents’ Association also runs the school’s book fair, and helps to facilitate Screen Free Week, when teachers, students and families work together to come up with fun ways to lessen our dependence on TV and other electronic devices and increase “family time.” Parents and grandparents are invited to join the classes on field trips or to come into the classroom as guest readers or project coordinators. The school hosts a variety of at-school and out-of-school events to bring the community together: Grandparents’ Day, Fall Family Fun Day, Winter Family Fun Day, VIP Day, Sibling Workshops, the annual Arts and Science Exhibits, and various musical performances. The school's Annual Benefit is a fundraising event for the wider community.

In true Gillen Brewer spirit, every Gillen Brewer parent is a member of the school's Parents' Association (PA). The Parents' Association is led by two co-chairs and a leadership team of committee chairs. A group of ten parent volunteers act as Class Representatives (one for each class), providing significant services for the school including assistance with programmatic initiatives and fundraising activities.
